sell something on the website to the customer in california and have a store in california, you have to create sales tax on the online sale as well as in your store. that is pretty straightforward. the other way that in texas is created, according to existing tax code, is if you have people working on your behalf -- sales agents or affiliate's who are driving business, who are, in effect, selling for you on your behalf in the state. amazon has over 10,000 affiliate's in the state driving business to amazon every single day. what ab 153 would do is state very clearly that those affiliate's relationships, the sales agents for them sun and others, create business in the state and therefore should collect sales tax. amount to briefly explain the notion of the affiliate's and sales agent. there are affiliate's who are, for instance, schools. mice -- my son's school was an amazon affiliate's. they said if we went to the website and bought a copy of the book the fifth grade class was reading, amazon would give them a little kick back. authors do this themselves to sell their books. they sen
, that these executions have been 7-10 years after the crime and we're not executing the same person. in california, everyone who has been executed has been 20 years after the crime and you are not executing the same person. people do change. from my observation of the victims' family members, and nothing that there is anything that execution can do for them. i think they come there with high hopes that they will somehow feel better, and that they will somehow be able to close this event, and you just -- it just does not happen. these are horrifying crimes. my heart goes out -- out to the victims' families. >> would you say that the instances -- instances of the executions, or any of these meritorious? did you see someone put to death that he thought was innocent? >> not in the cases that i dealt with. the things i oversaw, and guilt or innocence was not a question. in one case, it was the intention and not whether they were innocent or guilty of the crime. >> nevertheless, you arrive with the same feelings that the man from mississippi talked about, having gone through this process. >> i arrive at
himself. fork cases where the person has two prior convictions, they would go to the california supreme court for further review, and four justices on the california supreme court would need to approve the governor's action in that case. the california supreme court spends over 1/3 of their time working on death penalty cases, and they are under enormous pressure financially. the entire judicial system is. while we do not know what the supreme court would do, it would certainly be a huge relief to them to have these death penalty cases go away. after the death sentences had been converted to life without parole, it would be a question of reclassifying the inmates and moving them into other high- security prisons across california. then, the question of where they were in the appellate process would have to be addressed by the courts. in fact, both people -- most people on death row are still waiting for attorneys to be appointed, so in most cases, their appeals have not even begun. not most, 45%. they do not have habeas counsel, and many do not even have their first appellate at

of california, or do you think it is part of our general fund effort? >> it is a whole mix of things. there's a special california code creating landscaping and lighting district. there are a number of municipalities that have those. there are some districts, some municipalities have parcel taxes dedicated to trees. there are some places where it is part of the general fund responsibility. some places are largely private responsibilities except for trees that are fronting public buildings. in california, it is a whole hodgepodge. outside of california, it is mostly municipal responsibility. i grew up in minneapolis. all the trees were maintained by the park board. all the street trees. the cardboard had their own tax levy liked the school district does. they could levy property taxes in order to pay for this things, but that is not an option in california. supervisor avalos: ok, thank you. appreciate that. >> the tree maintenance plan, the plan is to relinquish 3700 healthy, recently approved, or established trees to property owners over seven years. 3400 trees are ready to relinquish in th

on the way. >> this deserves applause. >> we're making progress in california. the statue was enacted by the voters and it will take the voters working together to into the death penalty in california. this is a very daunting task. although the initial process gave people a voice in politics, this has turned into a situation where money has a voice in politics. this is going to be a challenge to raise the funds that we need to actually mount an initiative campaign with the death penalty, but we're getting closer and closer every day. the people of california are ready to end the death penalty. a couple of weeks ago we were able to do a poll on the question of the governor converting all of these 713 death sentences to life without possibility of parole, and a change would save the city california $1 billion in five years. 63% of the voters support this idea across the entire state. every region of the state had a majority of support. a majority of republicans and democratic voters support this idea. 63%, ready for the governor to take everyone off of death row. this is an important ch
polls consistently show that when california voters are offered the choice between the death penalty and the option of life without possibility of parole, voters prefer the option of life without parole. a poll was done in 2009 by a professor at uc santa cruz where he asked about replacing the death penalty with a sentence of life without parole with work and restitution, whether it is people -- with the people sentenced to life without parole would be required to work and some of the restitution would go to victims, and 2/3 of californians chose the option of life without parole and preferred that alternative. there is very strong support among voters for replacing the death penalty. in terms of how it would work, the governor has absolute authority to change any criminal sentence he wants, and that includes a death sentence, which he has the power to convert with -- convert to life without possibility of parole. the governor would take that action, most cases would completely end with him. he could change those sentences himself. fork cases where the person has two prior co

of all of california. the governor took a positive for step by canceling the project to build a new death row. in his statement, the governor said that this is unconscionable, to spend money on death row inmates as we cut funding for the disabled. it is unconscionable to spend $1 on the death penalty at all when we are cutting a vital services in the state. if we cut the death penalty and save $1 billion, this money would be much better used on law enforcement and education. we need to keep working together to get this message to the governor, to ask him right now to take action to convert all of these death sentences. and we will build momentum and the support that we need to actually put this on the ballot and into the death penalty in california. this goes down to where we started this conversation, whether this attorney would pursue the death penalty. the d.a. should not be asked to change between life -- choose between life and death. we are the voters to have to take responsibility and take this power away from them. >> are you aware of any other city other than san francisco, where
